ZACHARY, LA (WAFB) - A 55-year-old Zachary, La. woman was arrested this week on charges of cyberstalking after she is accused of sending vulgar emails to another woman.
Zachary Police say Chriscella Clay told them she could send "whatever [expletive] emails she wanted because it is not against the law." However, in Louisiana, cyberstalking carries a fine of not more than $2,000 and/or no more than one year in jail for the first conviction. Cyberstalking is described as using electronic mail or electronic communication of any words or language threatening to inflict bodily harm to any person.
Officers read emails sent by Clay and noted in the arrest report that she refers to the victim as "whore, [expletive], and sewer rat."
The officer contacted Clay on the phone and her first words to the officer were "F-word that [expletive]." The arrest report says Clay began to yell and scream at the officer through the telephone.
After the phone call, the officer was notified that Clay sent another email to the victim, containing more vulgar language telling the victim, "Call the police again ghetto trash, kiss my [expletive][expletive][expletive]."
The officer was dispatched to Clay's residence to arrest her on the charge of cyberstalking.
The officer arrived only to learn she sent another vulgar email stating "[expletive] you sewer rat and all yours, [expletive]."
Clay was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison where she was released on a $2,500 bond.
